in our campaign Daisygate, we have the local cityguard called “The Daisy Guard“, who the party has run into several times. They are trained, but polite city guards maintaining the order of the town. They serve the town.
However, I also needed a unit of Royal Guardians who are tasked with protecting the royals. These guards are trained elite soldiers, so I wanted them to look very different.
the Flameguards from Privateer Press look quite menacing with their tight helmets and big shields so they were perfect.
i painted them in the same colours but with a different symbol on the shields, a Daisy with a blood drop in the centre giving them the nick name “Blood Keepers”.
